Point Defiance Park, Tacoma Washington
Autumn is my favorite time of year. November is my birthday month - yay me! The weather is cooling off, and the leaves are changing. This is also the perfect time for family photos. Right in time for holiday gift giving and creating Christmas cards, I feel like late October and early November are the perfect months for annual family photos. We have a really short season here in Washington when the leaves are glorious shades of gold and yellow, but the rain and wind haven’t blown them all off the trees. So when the weather is fair - it’s time to take advantage of it!
For this year we went to Point Defiance Park in Tacoma Washington. This is a very popular destinations for sightseers and photographers alike. And there’s good reason - it’s gorgeous there! The fall color was in full display, and everyone looked great. While I’m always happy to provide a wardrobe consultation, this year none of the families needed it - their wardrobe game was on point!
We got very lucky, the weather was extremely mild, and there was no rain! Mini sessions are ideal for busy families. Kids have short attention spans, and you don’t have to dedicate a full day to a long portrait session. You’ll walk away with a nice assortment of images as well - 7-10 typically, that you can use for your Christmas cards, wall art, gifts, and on your social media accounts.
Below are just a few of my favorite images from Autumn mini sessions!
